Kompessor Coil Cover

Thought I'd post a picture of my coil cover. It's still in progress, still need to black-out the holes and flat clear it.

That's nice! I used a black wrinkle finish on mine after sand blasting.

Here it is, hopefully it shows. I wanted red to keep it original, but was short on free time. This ended up looking OK. Now I have a water pump to replace over the weekend. I was thinking of re-finishing the valve cover since the paint is flaking off.

I think your cover looks cleaner than mine!
